Q: When are route maps released?
A: First week of June. We generally try to follow the same route each year, but we do change the routes to accommodate road construction, as we don’t want to take riders over roads that are dangerous or may be ground down for spring resurfacing projects. For that reason, we wait until the first week of June to finalize maps.
Q: Does my registration include entry into the Door County Beer Festival?
A: No. Riders receive a lunch from our street food vendors and beer from Door County Brewing Company, but tickets to the tasting tent are sold separately.
Q: How late will you serve the post-ride meal?
A: We’ll keep serving food until 5:30 pm.
Q: Will there be traffic on the roads during the ride?
A: Yes, all roads are open to vehicle traffic, and cyclists are expected to follow the rules of the road.
Q: What time should I plan to start riding?
A: Those participating in the 100 mile route should depart from the town hall park by 7 am to ensure you return in time for the post-ride meal and music. Those in the 50 and 62-mile routes should leave by 8 am, and those in the 25-mile route should leave by 9 am.
Q: What fluids will be available at the aid stations?
A: We’ll have water and lemon lime Gatorade at all aid stations.
Q: Is this a timed event?
A: No, this is a ride, not a race, so there is no chip timing.
Q: Why did you change the name from the Ride for Nature to the Spring Classic?
A: Good question. You can find the answer here>>
